November already, weekly workout and more

Good morning all,

So November is here! I have a couple of busy weeks ahead of me with running the Mindfulness for Parents which is currently running in Petone and will be in Karori in three weeks on the Monday evenings. My 8-week classes in Tawa and Northland are in their third week, going along nicely! And on Saturday I was in the Petone Community House running the Mindfulness Zendoodle & Colouring Workshop. You can see what we’ve been up to here:

The workshop will be in the Karori Community Centre this Saturday the 7th!

So not only is it November, it is also Monday, so time for another weekly mindfulness workout. Here we go:

Stress is not healthy for you body and brain and general well being  This week I want you to try to become more aware of your stress levels.  You can visualise your stress level as a thermometer where the levels go up an down during the day. Or you can choose the traffic light and check in whether your levels are low (green), or high (red) or in between (orange). Or you can score your stress level on a 10 point scale, where 0 is no stress at all, and 10 is maximum stressed out. Just choose what works best for you.

If you find it hard to take time for this, or find it hard to rememer doing this, just set a timer on you phone for three different times a day, hang some sticky notes as a reminder, on your coffemaker for example, or write a little s on you hand as a reminder to notice your stress leel during the day. You can also choose to check in with yourself every time you drink or eat something. Keep track of your stress levels over this week, write them down and see how you are doing.

Have a good week,

Monique
